It’s time to talk about dementia. That’s what Alzheimer Scotland is saying to the public, health and social care professionals, their membership and everyone involved with Alzheimer Scotland for Dementia Awareness Week. 

The charity will be continuing its successful ‘Let’s talk about dementia’ theme as their centres, services, staff, volunteers and supporters across Scotland work to raise awareness and overcome stigma through local events and activities, including QMU.
